All life around runs over In its fullness without heed ; New life for tiniest twig or tree. New worlds of honey for the bee, And not one drop of dew for me Who perish as I plead. "Tis hard to die in Spring-time, When it stirs the poorest clod ; The wee Wren lifts it little heart In lusty songs to God ; And summer comes with conquering march ; Her banners waving 'neath the arch Of heaven, where I lie and parch Left dying by the road. 'Tis hard to die in Spring-time, When the long blue days unfold. And cowslip-colbr'd sunsets Grow, like Heaven's own heart, pure gold. Each breath of balm brings wave on wave Of new life that would lift and lave Sly life, whose feel is of the grave, And mingling with the mould. But sweet to die in Spring-time, When these lustres of the sward, And all the breaks of beauty v herewith Earth is daily starr'd, For me are but the outside show, All leading to the inner glow Of that strange world to which I go Forever with the Lord. O sweet to die in Spring-time, When I reach the promised Rest, And feel His arm round me Know I sink back on his breast ; His kisses close these poor dim eyes; Soon 1 shall hear Him say, "Arise," And, springing up wi.h glad surprise. Shall know Him, and be blest. 'Tis sweet to die in Spring-time, For 1 feel my golden year Ul spring and lite eternal Is beginning even here ! 1 Poor bUlen ! now yc you say and sii'h.

Piiyson once gave notice that he would be glad to see any person who did not intend to seek religion. About forty came He spent a very pleasant interview with them, saying nothing about re ligion, till jast as they were about to leave, he closed a few very plain re marks thus : " Suppose you should see, coming down from heaven, a very fine thread so Gne as to be almost invisible, and it should come and gently attach itself to you. You knew, we will suppose, it came from God. Should you dare to put out your band and thrust it away ?" He dwelt for a few moments on the idea, and then added: 44 Now such a thread has come from God to you this afternoon. You do not feel, you say, any interest in religion. But by your coming here this afternoon, God has fastened one little thread upon yon all. It is very weak, and frail, and you can easily brush it away. But you will not do so? Nc; welcome it, and it will en large and strengthen itself until it becomes a golden thread to bind you forever to a God of love I" 44 Ever of Tiiee.'' A sad story is connected with the name of the writer of the beautiful song ' Ever of Thee," which has been song and admired by so many in this country ar.d Europe: loley Hall was a gentleman by birth and education. Wealthy in his own riuht, with large expectations, he lenweedless life not choosing his associates, but allowing himself tojbedrawn into the society of the vicious. His property soon disap peared, and he was left without re sources sufficient to buy his daily bread. His musical talents had been lightly cultivated, but as he never needed them, he scatcely knew to what degree they could be available. In his distress, however, he wrote his charming song, 41 Ever of Thee." A London publisher cave him one nunarca amount, i i . , , r . . dollars for it: but that with 6uch a spendthrift. would not last lonr. He wrote other songs, but the money not coming as fast as he wished, in a weak moment he forged the name of his publisher, and although every effort was made een by tlie publisher) to save him, it was all of no use, and poor Foley went to Newgate, and died broken hearted before his trial came on. Choose Well. The line of con duct chosen by a young roan during the Gve years from fifteen to twenty, will, in almost every instance, deter mine his character in after life. As he is then careful or careless, prudent, iodustrions or ir.dolent, truthful or dissimulating, intelligent or ignorant, temperate or dissolute, so will he be in nfter year?, and it needs no prophet to cast his horoscope, or cal culate his chances in life.

The Rising Generation and Its Moral Prospects. We do not aim to print in our pa per simply matter to be read but en deavor to make our selections and writings of that kind that may be ustful to society, and worthy of a second thought. The following from a Michigan paper tells another chap ter on the rising generation and its moral prospects. When we left Michigan in 1861, the 44 Reform School " at Lansing contained but about twenty boys. The institution had then been established six years. The report for 1868, being the thir teenth year, has been issued, from which we quote: It seems from the report of Mr. J. I. Mead, Treasurer, that the receipts for the year, including $34,000 from the State, has been $54,000 aud over. all of which, except 1,000 has been disbursed. It is reported that $35, 000 will be needed, over and above the direct proceeds of the institution, to defray the current expenses of the enduing year, while $15,000 is aked for buildings, machinery and repairs. There are now iu the school 247 boys, 22 of whom are colored; 99 have been admitted during the year, and 100 released. Of the 99recieved during the year, 66 were committed for petit larceny. The average age of the occupants is 14 years and four months, and 168 of the 247 now there are employed iu making chairs. Since writing the above we have received the Pacific Churchman for February 4th, referring to a previ ous article upon this subject in our paper, from which we quote: We have only to call the attention of our thoughtful readers to the two articles which will appear in next week's paper, the one taken from the Sacramento Record, and the other from the Weekly Enterprise, of Ore gon City, to convince men of the evils which threaten our republic. The?e articles have been written from a stand po:nt which it is very important to be observed. And it is one upon which thousands and tens of thous ands of eyes are beginning to fall in sad forebodings of the future of our country. The great and grave ques tion before us is this: What sort of men are our boys to make? The no tion that education for the inteltect alone is to exalt a nation, has become almost the ruling passion of our peo pie. This will be found, ere long, a staff that must break and pierce the hand through and through that holds it. What is there in the education of only the intellect to cause boys to fear sinning? Pride, and di-reppct for age, and a disregard for all the re strain's of religion, come of this one. sided education. Whatever education is to do for a people, as regards the study of the political economy of the country, it is certain it does a crreat deal besides this. On the side of evil it opens up avenues to a vast amount of corrupt literature, which is deluding the land. It is needless to discourse of a fact so patent as this from one end of the nation to the other. Knowledge without grace on ly puffs np. And there is no more dangerous bane to a nation than a boastful and God-denying pride of the intellect. Our cotemporaries of the secular press might vastly lend a helping hand in this direction and stem the tide, which makes for the entire abo lition of religion from the national system of education. We are fully aware of the difficulties in the way, but this very knowledge that there are difficulties, and the apprehensions, which thousands of the thoughtful among parents are beginning to have on this subject, will prove, if pursued, to be the beginning of the end. There must be the national educa tion, and all these boys, which now are seen thronging our streets, almost as vagrants, ought by law to be re quired to be in school. And suppos ing this were made so, and our schools of one hundred became two hundred, and the schools of six hundred became a thousand, would the ultimate diffi culty of congregating together all these masses of the youth of the na tion, help us in the great moral ques tion of the day, as to what sort of a nation we are to become in the sec ond or third generation beyond us, following up the same process1? It is not helping us out of the difficulty by pointing to the Sunday School and the public places of. worship. The disproportion between children in the Sunday School and in the street on the Suuday is far greater than be tween the week day school and the same streets. The same is also more fearfully true of the disproportion of the Church going community com pared with those who disregard all religion. Am? in the degree that re- ligious culture is divorced from edu cation, will our youth bfcotne accus tomed to crime and dissipation, and these youth thus hardened will make godless and profane men. And what the end wi'l be requires no prophet to divine! Much truth is told by the articles referred to, and but few, if any, are prepared to hear the whole truth as it shall be, except we take warning and return to first principles on the subject of education. stekeotypisg xea spapers. Few persons are aware of the fact tkat our principal morning jourcals are not printed directly from the type, but from stereotypes taken from the regular forms. The whole time consumed in making the plates of the four pages is about twenty min utes. It is accomplished thus: Each page is made up in a separate form on a table in size and height express Iy adapted for the purpose; the legs of this table are furnished with cas ters, and as soon as the form is lock ed, the table is rolled into the stereo type room. The form is then re moved to the moulding table; the latter has an iron bed, the cavity of which is filled with steam, as heat is one of the requirements in facilitating the operation. After the right tern perature is attained, the form is re moved again to the imposing table, and two or three sheets of paper laid over the surface of the t3-pe, and they are then beaten down with a brush in the same manner that prin ters proceed in taking brush proof. The form is then carefully slid upon the moulding table, and another and heavier sheet of paper is placed over the first; this is covered with a wet blanket, the whole slipped under the press attached to the moulding table, and the power applied. This is done almost instantly, when the form is again run out, and the paper peeled off in a cotnple matrix of the whole form. A preparation of French chalk is now applied to the surface of this paper, when it is plac ed into the mouM, and the hot metal poured against it and the plate almost instantly formed. It is now removed to the planer; is cut, routed and justified, aud in a few minutes is on its way to the press room. These plates are cast in the txact form re quired for a cylinder press, and are about half an inch in thickness. The Flavkd Oct Wickedest Max. John Alljn has closed his house, as a dancing-house, and has Income very dojrged, sullen and si lent. He is disappointed with the turn afftirs have taken, and is angry with himself and all his neighbors. His old business has been entirely ruined, partly by exposure and part ly by his attempt to play off the nu's sionary bv his' pretended conversion. Between these two stools John Al len's dance house has fallen to the ground. He is said, however, to have saved a great deal of money out of his infamous business quite enough to keep him very comforta bly the remainder of his clays. He is a tall, powerfully-built man, about 35 years of age, but with a hang dog, brutal cast of countenance. He was unable to ask us into his house, as his wife was drunk, and when in that condition she is always very quarrel some. Every one in the street abuses John Allen, and expresses a pious wish that he may go to the devil as soon as possible, or any where else, so long as he takes him self off so said Tommy Hadden. They seem to think that so long as the Wickedest Man in New York res mains among them, so long will the agitation against their infamous mode of earning a living continue; but that if Allen could be got out of the way, the outcry against them would soou cease. Allen, without intending to do so, has certainly done more tc in jure the business of these "Sailors' Uetreats" than all the missionaries put together. He has, fortunately for the poor sailors, opened their eyes to the frauds practiced upon them, taught to be more careful of their own interests, and made them more shy than formerly of going to these places. His neighbors feel this, and bless him accordingly. Neio York Tribune. Supposed to be Coming. The Herald aks: 44 now many people will come from the East this year with the intention of settling on the Pacific Coast? We have collated from the Eastern papers the following promises of immigration from various localities: From New Yoik City, 12,000; from Philadelphia, 5,000; from Boston, 3,000; from New Or lens, 15,000; from Chicago, 25,000; from Cincinnati, 7,000; from St. Louis, 20,000 An immigration from the Southern States generally has been reckoned at not less than 50, 000, exclusive of New Orleans. These ores m;ke a total of 137,000 Animal Vaccination and it Advan tages. Xo. 2. ' By Elward Ballard, M. D., Medical Officer of Health for Islington. I may mention that doubts have been thrown upon the source of the virus with which M. Lmoix's first calf was vaccinated, but I have shown that these were quite unfounded, and the character of the virus used for animal vaccination in Paris has now been set at rest by the fact that shortly after M. Lanolx's return a new source of natural cow-pox was discovered at Beaugency, and ever since this alone has been propagated, the virus from the Neapolitan source having been allowed to die ont. The practice of animal vaccination has also been introduced into Vienna, Berlin, Brussels, and St. Petersburg, in all of which cities we are given to understand thst it has taken root. There mnst then be some advantages which have led to Jts adoption in so many places. The procedure, as followed by M. Charabon, in Paris, is this; Arrange ments are made by which a sure s sion of heifers or calves, of about the nge.of five months, is provided fur. 1 hey are carefully stabled, and fed upon the diet to which they have been accustomed. The animal to be vaccinated is placed on its left side and fastened down upon a table of convenient construction, and the op erator proceeds to shave with a dry razor the right side of the abdomen, commencing from the udder, and over a space of about ten inches long by six or eight broad. The calf, which is the vaccinifer, is laid alo upon its leftside and faslened down, and the fluid is obtained from a pock, by forcible compression of its bae by a pairofppring forceps, and the result is the rupture of the pock, and the abundant flow from it of a quantity of a thickish sulphur -colorid fluid, which is taken upon the lancet, or into capillary tubes, for the purpose of preservation. The animal on the tabic is vaccinated upon the shaven surface by puncture in sixty or eighty places, and means ore adoptr-d to pre vent subsequent injury by biting or licking. Pocks, which finally attain tlie size of large human vaccine pocks, speeddy begin to rise, and are used for the vaccination of children from the fourth to the sixth d:iy. Subse quently to tin's the vaccine they con tain is found to be less active, but still sufficiently so for the vaccination of another calf, for which the pocks left unopend are therefore used on the seventh or eighth d ay. The grounds upon which the practice of animal vaccination has been advocated are mainly three, and refer to the follow ing points, namely, the quantity of virus which may, so to speak, be manufactured, its energetic quality, and its purity. I may make a few remarks upon each of these. At different times all who are en gaged in vaccination have, I presume, experienced a difficulty in meeting the demand for vaccination by the sup ply of fresh virus at their disposal. It is always undesirable to make use of preserved lymph, but in seasons of sudden epidemic outbreaks of small pox, when large numbers of persons apply for secondary vaccination, and arrears of neglected children are brought in for primary vaccination, eveu the expedient of employing pre served lymph sometimes fails, and delays cf a dangerous character have arisen. Such delav cou'd never han- - 1 pen where a vaccinated calf is exist ent. The supply from sixty or sev enty pocks would be practically in exhaustible absolutely sufficient for the vaccination of as many persons as could well be operated upon directly, while the virus is sufficiently active. Another advantage is, that the vac cinifer can be readily made to travel to any place where a local demand for virus my suddenly arise. One or two heifers kept in London, for example, would suffice for anv de mand likely to be made in any part of the metropolis or in the provinces. The quality of vaccine virus can only be judged of by its iff cts when inoculated, and judged of thus there can be no question that much of the virus commonly in use even in this country fails to produce pocks of a character that can be regarded as satisfactory. I do not say that good, even typical, pocks are never seen. But that they are sometimes pro duced depends upon this, that from time to time individual practitioners have availed themselves of local out breaks of uatural cow-pox in dairy farms, to renew their source of viru-. Such outbreaks, however, are capri cious, and although scarcely a year passes without their occurring some where in the kingdom, they are not utilized as they might be. "One dif ficulty lies in the very brief period during which the pock by chance discovered upon a cow can be used with a chance of success for human vaccination. It is probable that at any rate some of the lyroph used iu the country at the present time hay been continuously reproduced by hu man generation from' the time of. Jenner. But this would make no difference were it not capable of proof that repeated human generation does impair the quality of the cow pox virus". ( To be continued. CO.FESSIOXS. The reading public are just now being tortured with confessions of tha assassins of Lixcolx. They purport to have been written years ago, but" were withheld for prudential reasons. Those reasons are either studiously' concealed or escape when silence would go to invalidate the trumped up affair palmed off as a confession Thus it seems one of them was with held ontil all the conspirators -were' tried. This was certainly very kind' in the holders of such precious" props crty. Can we, says the Philadelphia Press, even at this date, attribute so' much circumspection to those who were generally mixed up witS 6rie' of the most nefarious plots in the an-' nals of crime-? To do so is certainly"' to draw heavily on human credulity to ask of us, in fact,' to believe a lie. Had those confessions been real, and given to the world at the time of their making, they might have set up' a new theory in the mind of the pub--lie relative to the damning crime. and ! thus inured greatly to the benefit of" the parties implicated. They might have served to rescue the memories of those hanged from some of the odium which attached to their felony, and in all probability would have sent a ray of sympathy into the bar ren prison pen of those in exile. Could those we have every reason to believe interested iu " securin" such results have forgotten or over looked what would naturally follow from immediate publication of the' confessions? Bight anxious were they to screen the criminals from the ' consequences of their gu It. Were they not equally anxious to protect their names or alleviate their suffer-' iugs, and would they have neglected any of the means to secure even this last of boons 1 Certainly not. The oversight of thvirnon publica tion, then, leads to the inference that all these eoufessions are bogus papers, hatched from imagination and for a purpose. 'They were designed to ac complish precisely what their publi cation would have accomplished then had they been in existence. A new theory of the assassination must be set up, in order to school the public mind -to -the last official profanity which Andrew Johnson has uttered, viz : the pardon of ihe Tortngas mal- eiaetors. Abraham Lincoln whs not to be assassinated. Oh, no ! there was no de-ign to imbrue hands in his -blood. He was simply to be ab ducted, kidnapped, spirited away in the night, and given into the hahdi of those who would kill him. When a crime was to be pani.-hed it was not necessary that these things should be known, but when a pardon 1 was to be granted it was meet to give them publication. Well, the aefs of Mr. Johnson require just euch false hood to give them plausibility. For1 him to have pardoned the murderers of Mr. Lincoln may have caused vio lent retchings of even his own con science, while it would have added another stone to to the oblivious sep ulchre into which he is about to de scend. But to pardon those who were steeped in no deeper ignominy than that of kidnapping may be made to aprcar excusable in one of purely aldernianic tastes. Hence this charivari of confessions They are designed to draw off atten tion from the real crime and its"rer petratcrs, ar.d substitute a clouded comprehension of what actually took" place. People will not judge harshly at this distance from the deatl-tf the President, and the "deep darnna. lion of his takingoff' may have faded on the memories of many who1 onee fully realized its atrocity. If a doubt' can now be protruded where nong formerly existed, mayhap it will ex cuse the act of the Accidental sueces sor. Why else should all these cou fessions appear, when the pardon of the chief conspirators has been made. The discovery of these confessions ia at least opportune, and it is sti! more opportune that just at this time nry prudential reasons exist for further suppressing them. Bah! The fraud ia too transparent for belief. Like all the other bolstering processes of Andrew Johnson, it will prove a grating unction to lm soul, since he has set at large Dr. Mudd. and the 1 very last of the conspirators.' The number of thrashing ma chines in the United States is about 225,000, and they save five per cent, more of the grain than the flail. There is a total to tlie credit of lha machine of about 10,000,000 busfcujs actually. IBS'
